Finding one’s way

 

Finding one's way

Being a tenant in an integrated township, he had felt thankful during the pandemic. Amidst the endless lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, he felt happy seeing people around. While the world outside had changed, there was at least a sense of normalcy when he was in the township. As people shared each other’s pain, the community grew stronger.

But as he stepped into the world outside, he could hear a voice echoing in his head warning him of the dangers that lay ahead. He was unsure on what all had changed.

“Crucial to finding the way is this: there is no beginning or end.” He knew that he couldn’t rush into the pre-pandemic life in a matter of days or weeks. The health measures need to be followed as the health threat was still elevated.

It would be a slow return to business as usual.

Left at the altar

Left at the altar

We loved each other

to the moon and back but you

left me at the altar

 

We promised to be

by each other’s side but you

left me at the altar

 

We had some lovely

times together but you

left me at the altar

 

What started as joy

turned into depression as you

left me at the altar

Story of a Dragon Fruit

Story of a Dragon Fruit

Flashy and rigid

on the outside, soft and calm

on the insides

 

As I cut it, I

visualize the power and

strength it symbolizes

Curiosity

Curiosity

As they lay watching

the stars, they felt pure bliss not

having to stress out

 

But in the dead of

night, a shape-shifter had

other plans up its sleeve

 

While they got curious,

it went berserk posing a danger

to anything in its path

Blue world

The blue sky where birds

fly, the blue ocean where the

sea beings stay calm

The ‘other’ pandemic

The 'other' pandemic

The pandemic has upended our lives in more ways than we can imagine. Alongwith the direct impact in terms of fatalities, health concerns, there has also been the indirect impact. People have lost their livelihoods along with savings which took years to build. Children have lost their precious years of school life. Families have been torn apart in more ways than one can imagine.

And to top it off, more and more people are going hungry and facing poverty than ever before. Years of gains in equality and social welfare along with treatment of other diseases has all been lost within a matter of months. As the number of mouths to feed continues to increase, families continue to wonder on what would happen the next moment.

“Only mouths are we. Who sings the distant heart which safely exists in the center of all things?

Victory vs Defeat

Victory vs Defeat

I

Defeat is part and

parcel of life and shouldn’t be

an embarrassment

 

II

Victory is all

that matters and defeat is

surely an insult

Note: A palinode is an ode or song that retracts or recants a view or sentiment to what the poet wrote in a previous poem.

He just left

He just left

As I look back, I

keep wondering whether he

really loved me

 

We started as friends

in school, chit-chatting away

for hours on end

 

He always made it

a point to do what he could

to see others smile

 

He always went out

of his way to impress me

or so I observed

Journey of a seed to a plant

The journey of a

seed starts from soaking it in

water for sometime

 

The soaked seed needs to

be planted in quality

soil with perfection

 

Moisture, oxygen

and proper temperature

are required to grow

 

The roots appear at
